KinderSTAR is designed to meet the needs of children who require extended care after morning kindergarten. Children can attend the KinderSTAR afternoon kindergarten enrichment program. Activities include art projects, active time, science and quiet time. Children will be able to socialize and interact with their kindergarten friends and have a safe place to relax. A healthy afternoon snack will be provided. Busses will transport children from their schools to the Willow Recreation Center. Children must be enrolled in morning kindergarten.
